Document Do NHS Money Purchase (MP) AVCs provide any dependants benefits?

NHS Pensions is not able to advise what provision the MP AVC provider has regarding dependants benefits. To query this, you should contact the MP AVC provider directly.

When a member of the NHS Pension Scheme dies, the NHS Money Purchase AVC provided usually writes to the NHS Pension Scheme to ask who the beneficiary of the NHS Pension benefits is, and to request a copy of the members death certificate.

If you have an NHS MP AVC and do not want the dependants benefits associated with this to be paid to the beneficiary that the NHS Pension Scheme has on record, please contact your NHS MP AVC provider directly.
